[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Configurable preferred display device on DirectX

The UI isn't the most user friendly, but it's a start.  Basically this 
patch adds a configuration option to the directx output plugin where the 
user can specify the devicename of the display they want video to go to 
(rather than always defaulting the whatever display the control window 
is on) -- this is nice for a setup where you always want video to go to 
a second display (regardless of where the control window is).  If the 
devicename is blank, it will default to the previous behavior.  Examples 
of valid display names are \\.\DISPLAY1 or \\.\DISPLAY2

The next step is to switch it from a text field to a pulldown of 
available displays along with a little more error checking in the case 
where you specify a display that is subsequently removed.  There's also 
currently a flicker where the window opens on the primary display and is 
immediately repositioned onto the preferred display -- i'm looking into 
that also.
